This is my personal tiny improvement to the beautiful design by Aaron's Designs, featuring a more realistic top of the tower, based on the original construction plans. For all those who think that the models of the Tour Eiffel that you can buy in tourist shops in Paris are not big enough.
Important: the parts must be cut from 3mm material (MDF in my case).
The parts are provided in SVG and DXF format, whichever is suitable for you lasercutter.
The SVG/DXF only include the parts for the new top (everything above the second floor of the tower). You will need to cut all the parts from Aaron's Designs first, up to (but not including) the the big mast above the second floor (4 pieces, one per face).
The assembly of the parts should be self-explanatory (the original design was called a puzzle after all), if in doubt refer to the pictures.
Don't apply glue until you are sure that you assembled the parts correctly. Parts stay together quite well even without glue.

When visiting Paris with the kids last year, we saw both the real Tour Eiffel and, the day thereafter, the original version of this gorgeous 3D puzzle which was being displayed at the Paris Maker Faire. Needless to say, we just needed it. And while I was waiting for the laser cutter to complete his job, I redesigned the uppermost part of the tower, based on the original plans which can be found online.
